Ledbury club hosting major weekend grasstrack meeting
12:00pm Friday 18th July 2014 in Sport
ALL roads lead to Leddington on Sunday as the 2014 Auto Cycle Union British Masters Grasstrack Challenge heads to Ledbury Motor Cycle Club’s Orlham Farm venue.
Perhaps the most hotly contested event of the season for the 1,000cc sidecars and 500cc solo competitors sees tham all battling for a Masters Championship place later this year.
The meeting has a practice start time of 10.30am with the first race off at 1pm.
Admission prices are £12 with £9 for concessions and under 16s free. There is a full programme of events with 47 races and the main ones are supported by 500cc sidecars.
During the interval, spectators can enjoy the thrilling exhibition of the Calvin Palmer Sidecar Challenge.
Palmer is a Ledbury club member who suffered a bad motorcycle racing accident last year and his daughter Hannah is undertaking the challenge of riding as a passenger with four-time British Masters champion Mark Cossar on a four-lap demonstration.
Members of the Midlands Air Ambulance will be at the meeting and will benefit from fundraising during the day.
